Practice is underway, and going well (I'll have more details on that later).
I ran the Annapolis 10 miler yesterday and feel great about my effort. I'll have a race report soon.
In the meantime here's my schedule/map of my potential 2009 'cross season. Sadly word on the street is that Wonderland in Lancaster will not be a go this year, and my personal schedule doesn't look like it will accomodate IronCross or Gragnoue/Wissahickon. But things are always in flux.
